This is the review of the first of two exciting Xmas presents I got this year.
a rather bizarre Nintendo DS game in which you write anything you want and it appears.
That sounds rather impossible but having played it for a while it really does seem to have a massive dictionary with very few restrictions. For instance you can not use brand names, or racial/offensive or alcohol related words.
